So what have I done today. Somewhere between 'fuck' and 'all' might be the best answer. The reason for this is because I FUCKING FINALLY finished a Final Fantasy game on Tuesday and was struck by that weird thing where you finish a game and lose all willingness to play anything whatsoever. I got the same thing after finishing Assassin's Creed 2. However I did shrug it off to finish up the campaign in Modern Warfare 2, the only feeling that 'ending' gave to me is that the Modern Warfare series can go fuck itself. Nothing would make me happier than for Medal of Honour to come out next year and for it to be brilliant. It won't be brilliant because this is Medal of Honour, a series that rode on one brilliant sequence for several games, but I'd love it if it turned out that way.
Back to finishing a Final Fantasy game though. You may remember this blog I did
earlier this year listing 23 JRPGs I had lying around unfinished. Well it took way too long but while I have revisited pretty much all of those games at some point the only one I've pushed to completion is Final Fantasy 12. Let me say that my pushing that to the finale only served to confirm my previous assertion that 12 is the best of the series. Hopefully I'll regain the ability to play videogames sometime soon. Maybe around the time I remember where I put my copy of Eternal Sonata.
